Will Xbox One X or PS4 Pro Ever Receive Exclusive Games?

Assuming install bases become large enough for both, will we ever see exclusive games released for Xbox One X or PS4 Pro? Industry analyst Michael Goodman weighs in on the topic.

nope.. that's what a successor is for.. however, X and 4 are iterations...

Kingthrash36012d ago

The way I see it, that already do get exclusive games....
Ps4 gets exclusive's
Xbox gets exclusive's*
The xbx and p4p are the same as the base. It's only logic it be that way.

*Xbox has no exclusive's anymore.

darthv7212d ago

You mean to say that there are no games that xbox gets that arent on the ps4?

S2Killinit12d ago

No he means xbox games can be played/owned elsewhere i.e. PC. Which is true.

DARK_WOLF12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

Yeah but theyr still xbox games from the xbox store only on win10 the same OS that runs on xbox consoles.

Xbox exclusive PC+Console

Not on playstation
Not on nintendo

Only on xbox and you get to choose PC or Console.

@Kingtrash360

Xbox still has exclusives as far CONSOLE gamers (like yourself) are concerned. Is funny how you people say you could play Xbox exclusives on PC with better graphics and performance when we know that most of you don´t game on PC or even own a decent PC to run Xbox One games. So i got ask: What platform the majority of PS4 owners will be playing Destiny 2 again? On PC? Native 4K 60fps? Yeah, right. ;)

sd1112d ago

Yes and if only I could use mods, play early access games, have backwards compatibility, use cross play and use my digital ps4 games on a pc now or in 5 years time it would be a perfect platform. Both have their strengths and weaknesses.

DJStotty12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

As with PS4

PS Now is the only place to play incredible PlayStation exclusives on your PC - games like The Last of Us, the Uncharted series, God of War, Beyond: Two Souls, Killzone and ICO and Shadow of the Colossus in HD are all waiting for you to play instantly.

So does "PS4 not have exclusives anymore" or do you ignore that fact?

andrewsquall12d ago

@DARK_WOLF Does that include games that are on Steam too like Ori and the Blind Forest, Cuphead and Quantum Break with no "Xbox" purchasing required whatsoever? It really doesn't help that these are pretty much arguably Xbone's biggest "exclusives" to date too.

UnHoly_One12d ago

Exclusives should not have an apostrophe in it.

It doesn't possess anything, it's plural.

Mbofa6om11d ago

Ps4 games are available on pc
And many on the way
P4p has timed exclusive only

They shouldnt. They are not next gen consoles.

DARK_WOLF12d ago

One day i could see it happening.

Xbox one X + xbox 4

Like it was earlier this gen with x360 + xbox one

JackBNimble12d ago

One day it will be the end of this gen also ... So if that's going to happen (which I doubt) then they better get on it before next gen.

S2Killinit12d ago

If i can play it on my PC then its not "exclusive" to xbox anymore. Just saying. Why would i buy an expensive console if i get to play its games w/out it.

darthv7212d ago

There are a crap ton of games i can play on pc that are still considered exclusive to a specific console. Why would this be any different?

S2Killinit12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

well. I guess the difference is that when almost all of a console's 'exclusives' can be played on PC, it sort of makes the console irrelevant. in my opinion as someone who has a PC.

Krysis12d ago

Because you don't own a PC capable of playing them.

S2Killinit12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

@krysis
And you think that because...

S2Killinit12d ago

@DJStoty
With Playstation you cant play all their exclusives on pc. So no.

darthv7212d ago

"With Playstation you cant play all their exclusives on pc." maybe not "all" but a pretty big percentage of them. I got bleem and can play nearly every PS1 game on PC and there are some really good PS2 emulators as well as PS3 emu has progressed significantly. PS4 emulator shouldnt be too difficult due to the system being x86 based now.

But the funny thing is even though I could play those on PC... I dont. i prefer consoles and in that regard the games that are exclusive to one console are still exclusive to that console no matter if you want to bring PC into the mix or not. There are always going to be those who just prefer to game on a console and there is no changing that.

sd119d ago

Because you can resell your console games and play against friends who only own an xbox. Also you can use family sharing to play online multiplayer games against another person in your house with 1 digital copy of that game. To me that is 3 valid reasons to still own it alongside pc.

Xbox one X will receive Halo 5 ODLC lmao.

GordonKnight12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

That's why I'm passing on these systems. They are only being gimped by the original rushed consoles that were supposed to play PC level games at 1080p 60fps. It's a shame we won't see games come out on theese systems that can't be played on the X1 or PS4. Huge missed opportunity in my opinion. So I guess future PC games that we won't be able to run on the X1 or PS4 won't come to X1X or PS4.

Both Sony and MS said no, so no

darthv7213d ago

You don't think they can change their mind? Sony might not but MS has shown they can change their stance on something if they think it can benefit them.

OB1Biker13d ago (Edited 13d ago )

Would it be worth it though?
I doubt it.
What's the point? They are no new gen

k2d12d ago

The Last of Us 2; it'll probably cater to ps4 pro and ps5.

andrewsquall12d ago

@darthv72 So can you explain how it could possibly "benefit them" to build an XboneX game from the ground up, with GDDR5 architecture in mind (like a standard PS4 game) and then release it to a measly install base of about 2 million people?
In what reality would that benefit a huge corporation trying to make a profit from a project?

I should point out I am very aware that you have been saying since the "Scorpio's" reveal last year that they will most certainly not be releasing games on standard Xbone even when Microsoft made it very clear during its announcement at E3 2016 that the 2 consoles WILL be sharing the same games.
Even after E3 2017 you are still adamant that they are going to flip a switch and screw over 20 or so million gamers, especially the ones that bought a standard Xbone since Scorpio's announcement because their minds were put at ease that the console wouldn't be abandoned.

I don't think its going to happen mate no matter how badly you want it to. :)

Xbox is like the DCEU of gaming, Sony is like the MCU of gaming, and Nintendo is like the X-Men Cinematic Universe of gaming

OmnislashVer3612d ago (Edited 12d ago )

Nah, all cinematic comic universes are crap. Most have no story and people talking in theatric low voices the entire damn time to hide the fact there is no story or characterization. That and explosions but no plot. A few exceptions like Spidey 1-3 and Dark Knight Trilogy, most everything else is crap though, and gaming has far surpassed it. You can't tell me the generic "disarm the weapon threatening the city" plot hasn't been used in damn near everything as well as the "lets get as many low-voiced characters together again to fight off aliens/mythical monsters" hasn't been used as well. They hardly stray towards any real thematics, and when they do it's shallow, just theatrics because they're damn hollywood and lazy.

RommyReigns12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

I guess the analogy went over at least 6 users' and Omnislash's heads so I'll have to explain. Sony is like the MCU, a dominant force this gen where they keep releasing top titles and mostly receive the sales to match, obviously have by far the highest percentage of consoles sold this gen compared to the competition, and have more gigantic IP games to come. Xbox is like the DCEU, mediocre, went on the rinse/repeat IP route like DCEU went on the rinse/repeat Batman/Superman movie route, because of major mistakes from the start of the gen they have got utterly battered by Sony and every time Xbox tries to get space for hype, Sony shanks them with a top title to kill their hype (in the most recent case, Horizon Zero Dawn Frozen Wilds announced to be releasing on November 7th). Nintendo is like the X-Men Cinematic Universe, mostly releasing bang average typical 'Nintendo-esque' titles but releasing outstanding titles like Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon.

@Omnislash

I stopped taking your comment seriously when you specifically mentioned 'Spidey... 3' and 'Dark Knight Rises' as exceptions, they were terrible ( Spider-Man 3 was not Amazing Spider-Man 2 levels of terrible, but that film made a mockery of the first two films, Raimi did it in revenge to terrible decisions from the higher ups and it showed. Dark Knight Rises was also shoddy, the weakest out of the trilogy by far). Yes the DCEU is 'crap' (at least the MCU makes the attempt to put out great films and it shows in the reputation they've built up and box office takings for each film they release), but tbf if you change up certain words in your comment like changing 'aliens/mythical monsters' to 'evil motoring overlords' or 'alien robots', then you would have described the Fast and Furious and Transformers movie universes (Transformers 5 is easily the second worst film of this year so far next to that Emoji film, I watched them for free online and still felt ripped off).

OmnislashVer3612d ago (Edited 12d ago )

Good point. If I changed 'aliens/mythical monsters' to 'evil motoring overlords' or 'alien robots' I'd find the exact same amount of crap in Fast in Furious or Transformers.
